My husband is in jail and I have a notarized letter where he is letting me live in one of his house rent free for 4 yrs and I also have durable power of attorney over everything that belongs to my husband if him and his uncle name is on the deed granted we don't know where his uncle is can I quick deed the house into my name legally to pay the property taxes and get the electricy and gas on in the house
Generally speaking the short answer is no. You are presumed to have a fiduciary responsibility and putting the property in your name has the appearance of self dealing. The fact that he is in prison would not prevent him from signing himself which is the this should be done. Also the fact that you don't know where the uncle is does not
Mean you can ignore his interest.
You can do it and it would not be per se illegal but as Mr. Weissman points out it is subject to attack. As he suggests you should find a way to get your husband to sign the deed. Of course that will only take care of his interest in the real estate.
Anybody can pay the property taxes on the property. As to the utilities that depends on the utility companies as to who can get the utilities turned on. I would expect that if your husband conveyed you an interest in the property to you, you could get the utilities turned on in your name.
